The Broken Crown is a Legendary helm in Diablo III. It requires character level 18 to drop, and can drop from the Skeleton King the first time the player kills him between level 11 and 65 (inclusive).

Prior to patch 2.1, it was one of the few helms in game to provide the attack speed bonus. As of patch 2.1.2, it gained a Legendary power. The additional bonus gem will be of the same quality level as the original gem that drops (not the one that is socketed).

Its effect does not apply to Legendary Gems.
